When I was waffling on getting a Playstation back during the sales at Christmas 2016, the VR and this game were part of what convinced me. It is finally coming out on September 7th. Latest trailers and footage from E3.

Picked up my copy last night. Best Buy had a promo where they also gave me Destiny 2 for free.

Will probably load and try in the next few days, though it’s been a while since I’ve put my PS4 on so unsure what updates await.

Also, just want to point out my love for the limited edition console they made for this release

To me, the Deluxe only had extra costumes and then three DLC packs that come "by March 2019" - I figure I may just get those down the road if I want them and would save the $20 now.

This is the best spidey game I’ve played in forever. Very much feels like a true heir to the throne of Spider-Man 2.

Enjoying it so far. Not too deep into it yet. Just got money from aunt may. My only real complaints is the ground level stuff is a little boring. Just not much going on there.

It's a hard game ... cause I'm trying to fight recklessly against criminals. I have to say that characters look so realistic.

Yeah. I had to actually pay attention to what baddies I was facing and use attacks based on it... then realising that impact web and uppercutting and air attacks essentially break the combat.

I’ve just unlocked fast travel which is nice as webslinging was getting tiresome.

I need help. How do I take pictures? I go into Photo Mode and I can fumble around the settings but I don't see a shutter button. Also, how does taking photos of landmarks work? Is there a place on the map where I need to take each picture?

Landmark photos. You stand in front of it. Hit up on the d-pad to open the camera. L2 to aim, and I think R1 to snap. The screen will turn green when it’s in frame enough. I use the waypoints. It’ll put you right we’re you neeed to be.

For photo mode you have to hold the share button (which I always think of as the select button) and an icon will show up in the upper left corner showing the photo was take.

Figured it out. I didn't do one of the first missions so I couldn't take landmark photos. I've been trying to unlock all the towers and collect all the backpacks.

I mentioned earlier in the thread this game is one of the reasons I even got a PS4, so I haven't used the PS4 much. After I figured out how to turn it on yesterday and ran a long bit of updates, I played through the opening stretch. Did the whole Kingpin first thing. Pretty fun, got that Arkham vibe, the visuals are stunning.

Did the little lab part and not much else before turning it off for the night. Thinking more "freedom" comes now, which could be a good or bad thing.

I also got one of the alternate costumes as a pre-order bonus from Best Buy. I will have to load that and see which one it is, as I don't remember and am too lazy to look it up.

You unlock the pre order costumes as you play the game regardless. Only really worth it for the iron spider look from avengers if you like that look. I find myself always wearing the homecoming suit. That thing is pretty.

I’ve gone back to the classic look after running around in the Stark, Scarlet-Spider, Iron Spider and Spider-Punk suits for most of the game.

Surprised the Spider Armor IV is in the game. Considering how much newer it is, pretty amazing it is in.

3.3 million units sold in three days. Some articles are comparing dollar for dollar that this game had a better "opening weekend" than Spider-man: Homecoming. Think that is a little silly given the price point versus the film having repeat business this won't have.

The City That Never Sleeps DLC is actually already available next month.

Also production costs have to be taken into account. At this point I don't know what costs more to produce now. If you view the credits for this game or any other AAA title, the credits go on for years.

I'm sure the production costs for a game like this are insane. This is why DLC's are available almost straight after the release, sometimes even on day 1. It's a big risk making AAA games nowadays.

I’m one trophy away from the platinum. And I need to get full challenge points on the drone misssions to buy the remaining suits I need. I just can’t do them.

I’m nearing my endgame. I have a handful of crime/sable baddies to shut down. Otherwise the non story stuff has been done. Got all my suits. Still need a few mods to buy and greet some citizens. And my last mission was

taking down rhino and scorpion. Maybe a little after that. I know I need to go to Osborne’s place and back up MJ. So I’m sure I have another Mary Jane ducking behind boxes mission

Yes but it advances the story so much.

Finished all the crimes tonight. Down to needing to hit some more guys with trip wire. Then it’s just the last story missions and I’m platinum. The crime take downs get a bit tedious near the end. Still loving the game though.

I picked this up today. I'm not sure if I like the combat just yet, but that might be because I'm still fumbling with the controls a little and haven't gotten the "flow" of it yet. The game obviously wants you to stay off the ground as much as possible in combat and out swinging around the city (which is pretty smooth and fun to do).

Game does look fucking stellar, though.

Think about it like the Batman Arkham games. You can use stealth and gadgets to take down baddies or fight them head on.
